I too have my wife to the games. She left in a blaze of glory a month ago and from what I am assuming she has not sought out any therapy for herself. She bailed to live elsewhere because I was ****ed about her playing 60 hours a week. She thinks I am either jealous of her friends and or I do not understand the culture of gaming. I do, actually. As any good spouse would do I have looked up everything there is about addiction, digital addiction, video gaming addiction and impluse control. The addict will only seek help when the chips are stacked up against them. Maybe they will. I at this point, I am taking great care of myself, hanging out with amazing friends and praying and of course crying. Sometimes, I cry at the gym, in my car, at work, etc. I am feeling everything and it totally sucks. The active addict does not feel. They are stuffing their feelings into the games or god knows what. I did enable my wife for a time. I enabled her becasue it was the only time she was nice to me. The "gamer high" usually lasts for about 24 hours. I am sure many of you are also blown away that our loved ones are squandering their life away all for the sake of achievements points. For help go to either Alanon or Narc-anon. We all need a sense of community, one with flesh and blood engagement and not through texting or gaming. The meetings will help. You will find worth for yourself once again as I am trying on a daily basis. For that I will keep coming back! Thanks for letting me share.
If you can't stand for something you'll fall for anything.
